I first found out about this coin in 2017 during Canada's sesquicentennial. I wondered if the US had issued any coins for theirs and found the silver and gold issues from 1926. This is my first classic commem. I like the history as well as the interesting facts about it. It's one of only a handful of coins to have a living person on it. It's the only coin to have a current US president and the reverse was used 22 years later on the Franklin half dollar for 16 years.

Really cool coin Cdncoins.

I especially like the decision of the engraver to do something besides stars between LIBERTY and United States of America.

finally, my 2021 ASEs have arrived. one business strike/bullion (which I purchased out-of-pocket) and one W proof (which my saved-up street-finds funded):







that's my ceiling fan reflecting on the proof coin.

edit: and that's my 750th post, I just noticed, lol...

That's news to me; I was always under the impression that it was illegal in the US to depict a living person on a coin. Thanks for sharing.

Added this single Encased Coin, but I think more audience will get to see it here. Hopefully this is okay to post it here.

My latest as of yesterday. This 20 Dollar Canadian Silver coin shows a WW1 soldier standing at a gravesite and Commemorates Flanders Fields.
Very significant to me as my Grandfather was killed nearby in The Battle of Loos in 1915 and although his body was never recovered or identified, he is one of 20,000 other unidentified soldiers commemorated at the nearby Dud Corner Cemetery.
